After ditching dance music and going through a reinvention of sorts, blog favorite Sky Ferreira is back with a new sound and a new single “Red Lips”. And when I say ‘new sound’, I actually mean old sound, since “Red Lips” is basically just an old Garbage b-side, and not a very good one at that.
Not entirely shocking, since the Greg Kurstin-produced cut was co-written by none other than Shirley Manson. But why listen to Sky doing Garbage when I can just listen to Garbage doing Garbage?
The music video is a little more interesting. Directed by notorious fashion photog Terry Richardson, the clip sees a scantily-clad Sky covering herself in red lippie while a tarantula crawls all over her bangin’ bod. It’s pretty cool. Too bad about the song.
